(4)

In addition, in accordance with Article 12(3) of Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1062/2014, the Agency informed the Commission of those active substance/product-type combinations for which all participants have withdrawn or are considered to have withdrawn their support in a timely manner, and for which the role of participant had previously been taken over. Those active substance/product-type combinations which, in accordance with Article 20, first paragraph, point (a), of that Regulation, should not be approved for use in biocidal products are the following: silver, as a nanomaterial (product-types 2, 4, 9); Eucalyptus citriodora oil and citronellal, hydrated, cyclized (product-type 19); 2-Hydroxy-α,α,4-trimethylcyclohexanemethanol (product-type 19); chlorine dioxide generated from sodium chlorite and sodium persulfate (product-types 2, 3, 4, 5, 11); amines, C10-16-alkyldimethyl, N-oxides (product-type 4); Capsicum oleoresin (product-type 19); Capsicum annuum, ext. (product-type 19); reaction mass of (6E)-N-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-2-methylphenyl)-8-methylnon-6-enamide and N-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-2-methylphenyl)-8- methylnonanamide (product-type 19).
